Finance and Accounting – Online Training

Finance and accounting are at the heart of every business. These functions deal with recording, summarizing, and analyzing financial information across all departments for decision making, directing, and controlling their resources and activities. Every activity or non-activity in an organization has financial implications and financial acumen is expected at every organizational level. Professionals and functional managers in every department and functional area should have a certain amount of comfort and familiarity with the basic accounting and financial concepts, processes and practices so that they can use it to better manage and control their activities and make decisions that support organization’s larger goals.

Our accounting and finance training courses teach the candidate how to develop, interpret and implement financial concepts for financial planning and control; determine financial performance; and to develop, implement and maintain a general accounting system.

Accounting involves recording, summarizing, and presenting financial transactions. You need to analyze transactions before recording them in daily journals. Organizations use a variety of accounts, called general ledgers collectively, to record transactions in a number of business areas. A chart of accounts lists all these accounts in the general ledger. All individual accounts are then compiled, totaled and verified for correctness, and then presented as financial statements to the organization’s internal and external users. As in most other things, timing is of prime importance in accounting, specifically in recording transactions. Most organizations record revenue or expense transactions when they actually take place – known as accrual accounting. Others do it when money actually changes hands – known as cash accounting.
